Auction Block: 1957 BMW 507 Series II Roadster

While the Mercedes-Benz 300SL is inarguably one of the most beautiful cars of its era, that’s not to say that it was the only noteworthy postwar German design. On the contrary, for once BMW had set its sights on contesting the Three-Pointed Star, it proceeded with the development of a model that would definitely put its name on the map: the 507.

Pictured before you is a 1957 507 Series II roadster wearing chassis number 70073. One of 254 total cars built and among just 21 of those finished in Silbergrau grey, it’s pretty much as exclusive as exclusive gets. First delivered to Italy in August 1957, it was later shipped stateside as part of a transaction between Stuart Hanford and renowned exotics dealer Viviano Corradini. After changing hands two more times amongst prominent BMW collectors, it was sold through a Christie’s auction in 1998. By then, it was badly in need of an exterior update, so it underwent an extensive two-year restoration complete a with sparkling new coat of paint. Since that time, this rare example with its original matching-numbers engine, data plate, and period-correct fixings has only been exhibited once, making it quite the elusive offering. It’ll hit the auction block on May 3rd at the link below.
